Beskrivelse

Long-listed for the Man Booker Prize, award-winning author Peter Ho Davies's The Welsh Girl is a beautiful, ambitious novel that takes the reader into the most personal corner of war (New York Times bestselling author Ann Patchett), set in the stunning landscape of North Wales just after D-Day.

When a POW camp is established near her village, seventeen-year-old barmaid Esther Evans finds herself strangely drawn to the camp and its forlorn captives. She is exploring the camp boundary when the astonishing occurs: Karsten, a young German corporal, calls out to her from behind the fence. From that moment on, the two foster a secret relationship that will ultimately put them both at risk. Meanwhile, another foreigner, the German-Jewish interrogator Rotherham, travels to Wales to investigate Britain's most notorious Nazi prisoner, Rudolf Hess.

In this richly drawn and thought-provoking work, all will come to question where they belong and where their loyalties lie.
